Elderly and Vulnerable FREE plumbing & heating
WINTER 2021/22 FUNDRAISING APPEAL
THIS APPEAL WILL HELP US TO SAVE MORE LIVES NATIONAL THIS WINTER.
I have been asked today by 574 members of the community to re start the Depher initiative fund raising page, so we can continue supporting the Elderly, Vulnerable and disabled people in our Towns and Cities, reaching all the communities.
Depher has been doing this for 5 years and has helped 18,297 families and completed 43,679 free emergency jobs for members of the community who could not afford the cost, they were disabled and terminally ill.
Depher is a registered Not For Profit community interest company 11335052
Depher cic was founded in March 2017 after we witnessed a Plumbing and Heating company trying to overcharge and scam an elderly and disabled gentleman out of a total of £5500.00. We arrived in time, he called us for a second opinion - we spent 45 minutes with him repairing his boiler that was not dangerous, as he was led to believe by this other Plumbing and Heating company.
In a nutshell, too many elderly and disabled people are forgotten about and left to face the daily struggles with life saving repairs, without a second thought of what they face.
Since March 2017 we have seen more than there should be and it is growing out of control, with no help available it can only get worse unless we help and show community spirit.
The Government system has not been set up to deal with the issues that they face and i feel they never will, that is why depher has been launched.
With 16.5 Million elderly and disabled people living within this United Kingdom, it can mean the difference between Life and Death, especially in the winter time.
By helping us to develop accessible services from Depher, your support will also be helping to supercharge the need to make it widely available AND make it more inclusive to their needs.
We visited a property in Wigan, Lancashire
This elderly man could not afford to eat, never mind afford a bill for his boiler repair, his back boiler was in a poor state of service.
We attended and gave the boiler a good strip down and service with a new thermo-couple, he is now safe and warm, using his small income to keep himself with food , electric and gas.
Many Rogue traders
Take advantage of the elderly as well as the disabled, they are picked out because of their age or health issues and seen as an easy target. Depher cic will remove this situation and danger by enabling every elderly and disabled person in the United Kingdom access to our services 24 hours a day. We work with age concern and will establish a database that we can use to keep in touch with the growing population of elderly and disabled people.
" There are thousands of elderly and disabled people in our Towns, Cities and communities that suffer in silence because they are either too proud or too scared to ask for help when it comes to their Plumbing and Heating repairs ".
Last year over 50,000 people died because of cold homes and fuel poverty, depher will work hard and quickly to reduce this number every year.
There are companies that are charging way more than the elderly and disabled can afford, this is putting them in a position where they have to choose between heating their home or having food to eat.
